In brief: Get checked out

Different possibilities exist, and you'll probably want to make sure you don't have a yeast infection, a bacterial infection (bv) (neither of which are stds, and both of which are pretty common), or other issue going on.
Your doctor can check you for these in the office. In the meantime use protection if sexually active, limit # of partners & avoid douching. Smoking is also a BV risk, so avoid it.
